The Imbolc Maiden; it’s almost spring!

Imbolc (pronounced EE-Molc) is a Celtic holiday on February 1 commemorating the midway point of winter changing to spring. The Celtic Goddess Brighid transforms from the Crone of winter to the Maiden of spring. After being shut in all winter, this is a celebration of light and of lengthening days.

I made this dress specifically for Imbolc with dried, green ornamental grass as the bodice, green lichen with magenta hints, sage "wings" and magenta flowers. The winter of withered plant and tree material is combined with the green of spring.
